Building the Future by Nora Sobolov, Executive Director

It has been my pleasure to meet with many people in JobTrain family over the past six months. Everyone tells me how important it is for our community and our country to find ways to sustain and grow JobTrain’s reach and impact to help bridge the opportunity divide. 

As we consider how to meet this growing need, we have been looking at organizations throughout the Bay Area and across the country that work to help people seeking employment. What we’ve found won’t surprise our long-time supporters. There are unique qualities about JobTrain’s programs and services that contribute to our students’ success. These include the broad scope of our training and supportive services, working with people without a high school diploma and training people currently in jail through San Mateo County’s work furlough program. We truly help those most in need to succeed.

As we begin the countdown to our 50th Anniversary, we are considering how we can build on JobTrain’s unique services and impact, and find new paths to sustainability by collaborating with potential partners in the US and internationally.

In order to accomplish these goals, we’d like to get your candid opinions on the questions in JobTrain’s “Building the Future” survey. Your input will help guide us in developing our strategic and action plans.  We anticipate this survey will take you 10-15 minutes to complete. All responses will be used for research purposes only and will be kept strictly confidential. 

To take this survey, please click HEREPlease note: The deadline for completing this survey has been extended to Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

Our students and our community are counting on you. If you would like to contact me directly, I’m always happy to hear from you. Thank you very much for your time!
